I was eyeing some at Tractor supply the other day.

Reminded me of my grandfather. He wore bib overalls every day. Smoked Lucky Stripes and used the rolled up cuff as an ash tray.

I’ve got a couple pairs of the firehose ones from Duluth, they’re pretty awesome. I wear them camping in the fall/winter. Probably will have them for a long time. They’re solid

Heres to your grandpa.

 

He was probably the smartest man I ever knew.

Educated until the 3rd grade. Went to work on the cotton barges on the Chattahoochee river. Got a job in "The Shop" at a cotton mill for West Point Pepperell. Worked there for 50 years. Knew every nook and cranny of Dunson Mill.

Mason.

Deacon of Dunson Baptist Church.

Loved his family. Spoiled all of his grandchildren. Taught me a lot about life and gave a little kid confidence in himself. Had several deep, long relationships with friends.

He personally knew just about every moonshiner in Troup and Heard counties.

 

When Claude Stone died, his best friend, Pete Stevens, was at his funeral. I never saw a grown man cry like that. He was devastated.

I like when women wear these with no other top. But dudes in them just look like hayseeds.

Yeah, what Lou said.  I was expecting a Frank-style picture thread, this being Friday and all.

Men like that live on in the heart and minds of the people they knew.

I feel they are more comfortable than jeans with a belt.

they are great when you're working on cars and etc lying down and getting back up repeatedly, very comfortable, I find myself wearing them more these days than I used to.  I need to get another couple pair in fact

I've thought about getting a couple of pairs myself once some of my work pants wear out.

when its cold a lined coverall is nice for working outside.  carhartt is nice but overpriced.  no need to spend huge money on those unless its for your job.  I find the cheap house brands work best for my needs

This. When you find yourself on a concrete floor at -10F trying to replace a drive belt for a snowblower you'll be thankful to have these. Carhartt arctic lined FTW. Mine are close to 20 years old and will go a long time yet.

always hit or miss with size and style but good deals can be found https://www.sierra.c...tt~b~3120,4080/

 

The winter ones I have are insulated nomex ones.  They will keep me warm in any storm.  Best part was they were free from work.
